Winter has dragged on in much of the country, but here’s a sign spring is close at hand: Daylight saving time arrives tonight when we are all asleep.
Most Americans will set their clocks 1 hour forward before heading to bed tonight. Daylight saving time officially starts tomorrow at 2 a.m. local time.
You may lose an hour of sleep, but daylight saving time promises an extra hour of evening light for many months ahead.
It’s also a good time to put new batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors and hazard warning radios.
The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.
